Excellent balance sheet and good value

APN is financially robust, with ample cash on hand and short-term investments to meet upcoming liabilities. This implies that APN manages its cash and cost levels well, which is an important determinant of the company’s health. APN's has produced operating cash levels of 81.01x total debt over the past year, which implies that APN's management has put its borrowings into good use by generating enough cash to cover a sufficient portion of borrowings. APN is currently trading below its true value, which means the market is undervaluing the company's expected cash flow going forward. Investors have the opportunity to buy into the stock to reap capital gains, if APN's projected earnings trajectory does follow analyst consensus growth, which determines my intrinsic value of the company. Also, relative to the rest of its peers with similar levels of earnings, APN's share price is trading below the group's average. This bolsters the proposition that APN's price is currently discounted.
